Use these felt wheels to produce the ultimate, mirror polished edge. The finest edge you can get on any tool is with a strop or a felt wheel. Made from compressed wool, felt wheels have excellent resilience and are long lasting.
This soft felt wheel is able to deform slightly, enabling you to hone the edge of tools with tighter curves. Soft is a relative term; as the felt is still firm enough to produce a razor sharp edge as well as adapting to the shape of the tool.
When the wheel is dressed with a honing compound, the edge obtained is comparable to that of a razor blade. For best results use with Blue Steelbrite, Flexcut gold or Veritas green compound.
Each 100mm diameter x 20mm wide wheel has a 12mm bore for mounting onto the Ultimate Edge Twist n Fix arbor.
Please note that blades should always be presented to the wheel so the edge of the tool trails, i.e. the direction of rotation is away from the tool.
